Security in the registry

I am currently using OJS 3.0.1, and I believe that security is greatly improved by implementing the following change in user registration:

  • at the time the user registers the email, the system sends an email to the user to confirm and it accesses the email and confirm that it is a valid user.
    Thank you.

I would suggest to upgrade to OJS version 3.1.0-1 and check registration process and suggest improvements if needed.
Is your suggestion aimed at preventing spam users?


Hi @remy16,

See the require_validation setting in

Indeed, I use that in several installations.

Thanks on pointing to that.


thanks for the tip
I did not see this option
I’ll take a look at this option and do some testing on Monday
